She’s a keeper!

I still remember Ben’s face right before we met the dogs- he was SO excited. When I look back through all that happened when we were matched with our sweet Tallula (the post is HERE) I cant believe its been a year since we officially took Tula’s leash from her Puppy Raisers Dawn and Dan,… Continue Reading

Honey I crashed the car.

This pic says it all, and the roof even popped back up a little when they turned the car over! So we were going to a wedding reception. I had made the wedding cake but since I dont deliver, it was already there in one piece. Jonathan was at a camp out with Jack, and… Continue Reading

Happy Anniversary Darling!

I went all out this year because you deserve ONLY the best. Yes, I know you loved our Excursion. I still remember how proud you were the day we drove it home, I was 4 months pregnant with Jack and you were so excited to have a big family car! But honey that was 12… Continue Reading

I was just SO MAD!

Why does it feel better to hold on to angry feelings? It’s kind of like scratching a mosquito bite. You KNOW its not going to do any good and you KNOW it will just make it worse. But it’s also SO SO satisfying in the moment. I love that little critter book- because that is… Continue Reading

I’m sorry I forgot!

Natalie I’m sorry, I feel bad. You are my girl, you are my side kick, my sweetheart, I honestly can’t imagine a life without you and if someone asked me what I “do” I know exactly what I would say to them. But this morning I completely forgot. I had 3 places to be at… Continue Reading

Natalie you just turned 13. I really can’t believe our girl, our ONLY girl is a teenager. I feel like I am watching you like a hawk and you can blame it on Scotty. I blinked and he went from 9 to 16 and I am not going to let that happen with you. I… Continue Reading

Dear Elder Bednar, When I found out you were coming to the Sacramento area and our Stake would get to hear from you I was really looking forward to it. (I think it’s been 35 years since we had an apostle speak here!) I know we have been hearing you and all the other wonderful… Continue Reading

Hmph!

Jonathan and I are/were having a fight. (Mostly it’s me because he gets over stuff really fast and sometimes doesn’t even realize I am still mad. Hmph.) He doesn’t have a blog so I don’t think its fair to air my side of it when he can’t. Although I am sure I could very easily… Continue Reading

What did you say??

I got this note on my windshield in the blue parking at Sam’s club, where I had just finished grocery shopping with Ben and Ty. When I read it my first reaction was to get back out of the car and look around to see if the writer was still there watching, because I wanted… Continue Reading

Because they thought it looked awesome.

I find millions of selfies on the different devices around the house. Usually I delete 49 of the 50 taken (they can’t seem to ever take just one…) But when Ben, (following the lead of the bigs) learned how to set wallpaper (lock AND/OR home screen) it went to a whole new level. I’ve started… Continue Reading
